Dean has just completed his much-anticipated book of short stories, Surface Children. You can read about it here.

WE ALL COME FROM DUST

My throat hurt and everything outside my car looked sort of orange. The bushfires in New South Wales and Queensland had gotten so severe that the dust had spread out like an arm towards Brisbane, and as it closed its soft hand on us everything became hazy, and there was a huge looming fog in every place where there wasn’t supposed to be a huge looming fog, and everyone’s throat was sort of scra...

“You know what pisses me off about time? It only lets us experience it once, yet it lasts forever.”
Dean Blake

“So many books, so little time.”
Frank Zappa

“I had all the characteristics of a human being—flesh, blood, skin, hair—but my depersonalization was so intense, had gone so deep, that my normal ability to feel compassion had been eradicated, the victim of a slow, purposeful erasure. I was simply imitating reality, a rough resemblance of a human being, with only a dim corner of my mind functioning”
Bret Easton Ellis, American Psycho

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
Plato

“You know what pisses me off about time? It only lets us experience it once, yet it lasts forever.”
Dean Blake

“Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You're by no means alone on that score, you'll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them—if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
